Pattern #005: From some of my lovely customers.

This is the one, below. It's been my most popular pattern so far and is a very cute little dress or tunic.




I've been pointed to a few pictures by the lovely ladies who bought this pattern and made lovely dress or tunic from it.  There's a few here, with thanks to those involved for their permission:

These first three pictures are dresses and tunics made by the talented Tillietogs, whose work you can see over on Flickr.  She does lovely crochet items too and it's nice to see the sewn dresses along with crochet trims and accessories:

This first one - three gorgeous little crocheted and sewn outfits:


And a couple of tunics with the leggings (I think?) from pattern #007.  (Let me know if I'm wrong about that.) I love that beret with the tiny crochet flowers. :)



And my personal favourite, A pink ensemble in Liberty Tana lawn with more crochet.   I just love this whole picture. The dolly herself is perfect for the outfit and the little necklace - well, I'd wear it myself:


Next, here's a couple from Jodie Creations.   She makes really pretty dresses and underwear for Ellowyne and this is an outfit she made by converting the pattern. It looks adorable on Pru:


And a really lovely dress in blue fabric with daisies. Another favourite of mine:


Last but definitely not least, is a really lovely dress made by Elna Rothberger.... (Elna, if you see this, I hope it's okay to post this and mention you.  I did ask if it was okay on Facebook, but no reply as yet.  I hope I'm not being too cheeky. I'll take this down if you'd prefer.)

It's just so lovely, I really wanted to include it. I love the hem, which I can't quite tell if it's a picot hem, or there's some kind of lace there.  But the fabric is so pretty.



That's it for now. If anyone has made something from a Raccoon pattern, let me know where the picture is and I'll endeavour to show it off in future blog posts.

  1. It's lovely to see what's been made. The girls and I thank you for your nice words and the link to my Flickr!! I've seen Jodie's creations before - nice to see how the pattern can be adapted and I love the blue dress. The fabric Elna has used is gorgeous. You are quite correct the leggings come from pattern 007 - I've still to make the full length version! Better get on with Chelsey's dress she's giving me that look that only an Ell can do!!!! (PS - the blog looks different - have you changed it - we like it!! )

    1. You're welcome, I'm bowled over by that pink frock, and your photo would makea perfect cover girl for a dolly magazine!

      Yep, Jodie makes some really cute lil' underwear sets and frocks., and she's really nice too! I see lots of makers around that I'm shy to say hello too, and it's always lovely when it does eventually happen! Elna's is delightful too, I want that fabric! lol.

      Ah! Wasn't sure about the leggings. Couldn't recall if you'd bought the pattern but now it all comes flooding back to me. :)

      And yes, I faffed round with it last night. I'm glad you likey. I wanted it to look a bit more upmarket and sleek. The pure white background was giving me a slight headache too!

    2. The word that came to mind when I saw the blog was it looked 'clean'... so I think that fits in with upmarket and sleek..... so you've achieved your aim - and the grey is much easier on the eye. I'm really pleased with the pink frock too and Angharad is just the perfect girl to wear that type of frock - I could so see her as a Jane Austen character lol!!

    3. 'Clean' is a good word, lol. I'm happy with that. I must say I love the name Angharad. It always reminds me of Poldark on TV back in the seventies. (I'm so old...)

    4. No you're not old.... I loved Poldark back in the day - and I think that's when I first heard the name.... such a good series.... and that's also why I have a girl called Demelza even if she likes to be called Demi!!

    5. I knew a girl called Demelza and she insisted everyone called her Demi. I used to love it, but remember having to fight my mum for the TV when it was on.

  2. Thank you for posting my dress! It is always nice to see what others have made from the same pattern. They are all lovely!!! The hem on my dress is a reversed hem stitch, Someone used it on another doll page, and I liked it. I use it quite a lot on doll outfits.
